Somalia CVA Case Study: Cash and Voucher Assistance and Gender-Based Violence Risk Mitigation

1 June 2021 — By UNFPA

In order to better understand the potential risks for women and girls that may be created by the provision of humanitarian cash assistance, Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA) and Gender-Based Violence (GBV) experts from Somalia worked closely together to evaluate existing CVA interventions in Somalia and draft a common work plan highlight key risks for women and girls and potential mitigation measures. To ensure local uptake and sustainability of this joint CVA & GBV teamwork, the work plan produced through this joint effort has been formally presented to the Somalia HCT, and a roundtable with donors, key agencies, and stakeholders is planned for later in 2021. During the roundtable, specific requests will also be presented to the donor community, building towards long term accountability at national level for GBV risk mitigation in CVA in Somalia.
